We encourage open communication and intellectual debate on our various platforms (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube) that is respectful and considerate of the diversity of opinions and viewpoints in our community. Governor’s reserves the right to review and delete comments and direct messages that we determine to be:

  • Violations of our mission;

  • Defamatory, vulgar, inappropriate, or obscene;
  • Suggestions or encouragement of illegal activity;
  • Off-topic or irrelevant to the subject under discussion;
  • Violation of copyright;
  • Promotions or endorsements of commercial services or products;
  • Malicious intent (trolling); or
  • Made anonymously or under a pseudonym

Comments and direct messages made on pages maintained by The Governor’s Academy are the opinions and expressions of the commenter only; the appearance of opinions or expressions on the page does not constitute agreement or endorsement by the Academy.

We reserve the right to edit or withhold comments and direct messages or eliminate a user’s ability to comment or direct message at any time. If you believe someone is posting in ways that are inappropriate or have any questions, please contact Director of Marketing & Communications Lindsay McPherson Batastini.
